The long summer holidays are an uphill task, specially when I have twin boys at an age when they are boisterous and need something that can keep them occupied and out of my way for at least one hour in the day to give me some breather! Some searches on google to think of crafty ideas for my boys led me to this KukuCrate. A review of them on Momsters, just assured me that I was on the right track. The cute green box arrived and I told them it was an early birthday gift for them from KukuCrate. And the box has now been christened “kuku aunty ka gift”.
What’s KukuCrate and what’s in it?
For me Kukucrate is a life saver! Kukucrate consists of theme based, hands-on learning projects for kids ages 4-8 all packed in a cute green carton. The projects range from arts, science, crafts and more to inspire creativity, learning, growth and fun.
The green carton contains 4-5 hands-on, theme-based projects with all the materials and instructions. Projects cover a number of development areas through arts, science, crafts, and imaginative plays. Crate may include a kid’s book and activity related to different global culture depending on the monthly theme. Each crate provides hours of fun for the kids without any hassle for the parents.
Kukucrate says ” Guided by our design principles of creativity, growth, learning, and fun, every project is designed by a team of parents, teachers, and child development experts. Every project is tested by a crew of kids aged 4-8 to ensure the projects are fun, engaging, and appealing for our young members.”
What was in my box?
I got a complimentary box for April and this is what my box contained.
1. A packet of seeds, a glass bowl, sand and weeds to create a terrarium.
2. Craft: A DIY wall hanger that was fun to stick and colour and decorate
3. Making a photo frame for my boys
4. Creating a yarn ball
5. Colouring book and colour pencils
My take on Kukucrate
Boys and crafts are not really the right combination. I have never been introduced to the concept of craft boxes earlier and this is my first one and I was as excited as my kids were. Luckily for me, my boys totally loved participating in the making of the crafts.
My boys are just 4, so they obviously needed some help to get the things in place and it was absolute fun indulging in some crafting together. I know despite those packed days, it was a breather for me as well as the kids, when we would work on the crafts.
Each month has a different set of projects. So it sure will be a box full of surprises for your kid.
The crafts are mix of getting your kid acquainted to lots of skills. I found the photo frame activity and the wall hanger activity helped in the hand-eye co-ordination skills.
One good thing about Kukucrate is that they tell you what’s inside the box, so people who do not want to go into a long term subscription and pick up things that will interest their kids, this is a very good option. At least I would prefer it this way because I know I am investing in something my boys will like.
Will I opt for another crate? : Of course yes!
